Hello I’m Helen,

Charity Specialist with The Wise Owl Partnership



In my 21 year career at the Charity Commission for England and Wales I worked in all the key areas of the Commission’s services including Registration, Legal Permissions, Regulatory Compliance, Investigations and as Head of Litigation and Review.

During this time I helped hundreds of charity trustees to register their charity, improve governance and make changes to the way their charity works.

I loved my work and, just as importantly, the people that I worked with. However I felt that, with reduced levels of funding, the Commission was having to change its focus and I couldn’t continue to provide trustees with the level of one-to-one help that they sometimes need.

I established The Wise Owl Partnership in 2016 to offer charities the type of service that I feel many trustees still want.

I know how difficult it can be for busy trustees to keep on top of all the tasks involved in running a charity and that it can be quite daunting to make an application to register a charity or for permission to do something. That’s why our services are designed to help you every step of the way. Whether you need help with a project or administrative tasks, to make an application to the Commission or to improve the way you manage your charity I can help. My years of experience will help you to keep within the strict legal and regulatory framework that applies to charities and allow you to focus your time on helping your charity’s beneficiaries.

There will certainly be occasions when you will require a solicitor or accountant and I will always advise you at the outset if I believe this to be the case.

For everything else, take a look at the services we offer and contact us for a free assessment of your needs to see how we can help.

I really look forward to working with you,

Helen Signature 2
